Since the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified powerline and radio frequency radiation as “class 2B possible carcinogens” in 2011, concerns have been growing regarding the safety of the types of EMF radiation emitted by modern appliances such as Wi-Fi, Smart Meters and mobile phones.
Mobile phones are such a big part of our lives nowadays it may be unrealistic for most of us to consider stopping using them altogether. However, if you are concerned about their potential long-term health effects, the Blocsock is a practical way to help reduce the amount of mobile phone radiation being absorbed by your body.
You may already be aware that each mobile phone has a SAR rating (specific absorption rate). This rating measures how much electromagnetic radiation gets absorbed by the tissues in your body whilst you use your mobile phone.
Using a Blocsock reduces this rating dramatically, by 96%.
During a mobile phone call, the sender antenna of the phone emits radiation. When the phone is placed at the side of your head, this radiation will penetrate the head and brain. To shield the head a special shielding technique has to be used, shielding the so-called "near field", which is the space of the first wavelength of radiation from the antenna. Blocsock have taken a special "near field" shielding fabric and turned it into a sock for the phone.
You can carry the phone in the Blocsock 'kangaroo pouch' with the screen visible, turning it to face the protective pouch to shield you from the cell phone radiation when in use. When not in use carry the phone with the protective pouch between your body and the phone to protect your vital organs from the standby cell phone radiation.
When your phone is in the Blocsock case, you'll still be able to receive incoming calls and messages as normal.
